The European Commission has asked the European Vision Institute within the scope of the EuroVisionNet project to start an open consultation process for unmet research/clinical needs in Vision Science and Ophthalmology.
The results of presently neglected and/or emerging fields will be collected and presented in a 'White Book' entitled "A Vision for Horizon 2020 - A European Strategic Roadmap for Vision Research and Ophthalmology" to the Commission services and other funding bodies. This 'White Book' should help the community to increase the competiveness and visibility of Vision Research and Ophthalmology within the 8th Framework Programme, called Horizon 2020.
The consultation is open from November 15th until January 31st, 2012 to all stakeholders of the community, respective scientists, clinicians, patient organizations, academic or private institutions and namely, companies.
The closing date for the EuroVisionNet Open Consultation on HORIZON 2020 was January 31th, 2012 .
